Bend It Like Beckham

Yesterday was International Women's Day and at school, we did various commemorative activities.
In PE we watched the movie "Bend It Like Beckham" rather than play or practice other activities. The plot of this film is about  how sometimes women have to breaking the rules to achieve their goals .
"Bend It Like Beckham" explores the world of women's football, the relationships between daughters and their families, especially their mothers, and differences over what is the best future for girls in  the context of different cultures.
The sport as a profession is also an objective for many girls, however it is rare that their families are excited at the prospect, especially when it is a very masculine sport like football.
This film has given me the opportunity to work with my students about the equal rights and opportunities. When the film finished  we had a very interesting discussion where boys and girls were able to express  their views on many issues that came out in the movie.

 This is the trailer of the movie. Enjoy it !
